Quotes of the Day

“When a guy sits down and eats something fatty and big, you wonder if they eat like that all the time. It crosses my mind they’ll probably die early.”
–Brice Gaillard, single freelance design writer, in a NYTimes article on how real single women–especially the writers– order steak.
“Everyone wants to be the girl who drinks the beer and eats the steak and looks like Kate Hudson. Being a vegetarian puts you at a disadvantage. You’re in the most basic category of finicky. Even women who order chicken, it isn’t enough.”

–Sloane Crosley, a writer and publicist at Random House, quoted in the same article.

    I read that article and found it very strange. So now women are supposed to be the down-to-earth beef-eating (but slim!) type – and it’s just as imperative to convey that image of yourself as it was to be a fragile doll at other times. Really girls – what are you thinking??? Why would you want to be with a person who dislikes your “real” food preferences and eating habits?

    Completely agree with Andrea. I eat what I eat. The only time I would ever eat ‘dainty’ is if I’ve eaten before a date is because the original plan is to just have drinks, but I’d never not have the steak if that’s what I wanted. Except I don’t eat meat, only fish. Fusspot? Me? ;-)
    I think this article is too much of an exaggeration. It’s certainly been a talking point among the women of NYC.
